Simply Orange held a wonderful cooking event at the Institute of Culinary Education where we had to work for our food, resulting in a much delicious and appreciated meal.

Divided into 3 teams of 5 we prepared appetizers, main course, and dessert which would make any Sunday brunch successful – only we had it for dinner!

Simply Orange was served in different forms: as cocktails and pure juice (orange, apple, and grapefruit flavors).  Mimosa (orange juice with champagne)  is my favorite summer drink and Simply Orange certainly compliments it with a naturally light taste.

I also loved the fact that chefs infused Simply Orange into Orange Pecan Muffins! Natural flavors made us skip on the sugary syrups.

I joked when I said if it was a competition my team would win, but as it turned out our salmon hash was a winner even among food bloggers.
